A Rare SG Special with Factory-Ordered "Short" Gibson Vibrola.


1961 Gibson SG Special.


This near mint, factory-ordered, lightweight SG Special with a solid Honduras mahogany body weighs just 6.70 lbs. One-piece mahogany neck with a nice medium profile and a rosewood fretboard with pearl dot position markers and 22 jumbo frets. Two really hot P-90 pickups with outputs of 7.98k and 8.10k. Combination ridged "wrap-over" bridge/tailpiece and factory-ordered "short" Gibson Vibrola. A near mint example in the original "alligator" brown softshell case. In early 1961 the SG Special was revamped with the ultra thin body design pioneered on the Les Paul Standard, but most of the other specifications remained unchanged. The model was fitted with a restyled 5-ply black pickguard and the earliest versions had the 'angled' bridge as per it's predecessor. Apart from some minuscule belt buckle wear on the back of the guitar and a few tiny (and I mean tiny) marks on the top and sides, this forty-eight-year-old "Closet Queen" is totally untouched, unfaded, and just plain gorgeous!  Complete with the original leather strap and patch-cord.
